Earth angel

(From Earth Angel, by Doreen Virtue, PH. D.)

Are you an Earth Angel?

 

Do you feel different from other people, as if you were dropped off on this planet and wonder when someones coming to take you home? If so, then you may be an Earth Angel.  If you have a passion and talent for healing, teaching, or helping others, yet you yourself have substance abuse problems, weight issues, relationship challenges, and the like, then you may be an Earth Angel.  If youre highly sensitive and you abhor violence in any form, then you may very well be an Earth Angel!

 

An Earth Angel is a soul with non-Earthly origins.  Although all souls originate from the same Divine source, our environment and personal history often shape our personalities and physical characteristics.  For instance, those who spend most of their time surfing at tropical beaches will have different looks and mannerisms than people who hole up in their inner-city offices every day.

 

Similarly, all of the lives youve previously lived have impacted you.  And just as your physical family-of-origins shape your looks, behavior, even your lifes purpose.  Again, the inside of everyone is the same: a beautiful, pristine spark for Divine light. However, as a light worker, your spark of light may have spent times in heavenly realms far from the earth.  Those lifetimes that youve logged in the angelic realm, the elemental kingdom, or on other planets have influenced who you are today.  Although you inhabit a human body, your soul feels like a traveler in a foreign country-because that is, in essence, what you are.

 

Not everyone is an Earth Angel, of course-for this role, God called in the biggest and brightest sparks of lighter for transition to the New Age of Peace.  Those humans who arent Earth Angels are living lives purely for their own growth, rest, or enjoyment.  They may seem dense or decidedly unspiritual, yet theyre Divine spark of life, too.  Their lives have simply been dedicated to human, Earthly concerns.

 

The Earth Angels Vital Mission

 

If youre an Earth Angel, then youre a powerful light worker with a legacy of healing and miracles behind and in front of you.  You accepted your Divine assignment to come to Earth and spread your teachings and healing energies.  How has your assignment been so far? If youve have difficulty adjusting to Earthly life, then youll probably find answers, comfort, and guidance by remembering your spiritual origin.

 

You may discover that youre an Incarnated Angel or Elemental; a Starperson whose past lives have been extraterrestrial (ET); a Walk-in; or a Wise One, which is a reincarnated Sorceress, High Priestess, or Wizard.  Youre a seasoned service worker called into action-an Earth Angel.  You may have had past lives on Earth as an Incarnated Angel, Elemental, and such, yet you forgot these incarnations, believing that your past lives where human.

 

The term Earth Angel is not to be confused with Incarnated Angels, which is one of the five groups of Earth Angels.  By learning about your spiritual realm of origin, youll understand more about your personality, behavior, and individual quirks.  As I mentioned, this is similar to the was our astrological sun signs group us into meaningful categories.

The Healing Power of Lightworkers
by Doreen Virtue, PH. D.

Lightworkers are those who volunteered, before birth, to help the planet and its population heal from the effects of fear. Each lightworker is here for a sacred purpose. Very often, however, life on earth with its material focus creates a form of amnesia in lightworkers. They then forget their divine and perfect identities, and also their abilities to miraculously help the earth and all living creatures. When lightworkers forget their true identity and purpose, they feel lost and afraid.

 

You are a lightworker if you:

feel called to heal others want to resolve the world's social and environmental problems believe that spiritual methods can heal any situation have had mystical experiences, such as psychic premonitions or angelic encounters have endured harsh life experiences that eroded the knowledge of your divine perfection want to heal your own life as a first step in healing the world feel compelled to write, teach, or counsel about your healing experiences feel a sense of time urgency to fulfill your mission before the know that you are here for a higher purpose, even if you are unsure what it is or how to fulfill it feel a sense of time urgency to fulfill your mission before the millennium shift

 

Everywhere on the planet right now, lightworkers are awakening to faint memories about why they came to earth. They hear an inner calling that can't be ignored. This call is a reminder that it is now time to stop toying with material dreams, and get to work.

 

Many lightworkers are discovering innate spiritual gifts, such as psychic communication skills and spiritual healing abilities. These are the gifts that we volunteered to use to heal the earth and her population during the crucial decades surrounding the millennium.

Prophecies predicted our coming, and now it is time for us to fulfill our divine purposes. The world depends upon us!

 

We, who are lightworkers, don't necessarily need to add anything to ourselves to prepare for our mission. We already have innate abilities, even if they are presently dormant. Instead, we need to work on releasing fears which keep us from feeling confident in our lightworker abilities. When you remind yourself that your power as a lightworker comes from your higher self and God, not from "you," automatically you feel more assured of your abilities as a spiritual healer.

 

With our focused intent, thought, and spirit, we can heal anything. There are no limits, except those we place upon our healing abilities. We definitely can heal the earth with our spiritual approach. In fact, scientists have recently demonstrated that people can change water and air temperature and also cloud structures, purely through their thoughts. Researchers have known for years that prayer positively affects plants and animals. These studies reveal something that many lightworkers have already known: our collective prayers and healing thoughts can avert prophecies of world trauma.

 

There is only one spirit and one mind, and we are all part of this collective intelligence and love. Miraculous results in scientific laboratories are demonstrating the factual basis of the oneness of all life. Last year, U.S. and Japanese scientists hooked-up test subjects to blood pressure and heart monitor machines. Simultaneously, in separate and sealed rooms, other test subjects were asked to think loving or angry thoughts about the people hooked-up to the machines. At the exact instant when a subject held a loving thought, the monitored person's blood pressure and heart rate significantly dropped. And then, at the precise moment when an angry thought was projected, the person's vital signs sky-rocketed upward.

 

We who are lightworkers are already aware of the power of our thoughts. What we are continuing to learn, however, is that our thoughts are even more powerful than we suspected! A large part of our lightworker function, then, is to continuously monitor our own thoughts to ensure they are from a high and loving plane. When we occasionally slip into fearful or judgmental thoughts, we can release these thought forms to the angels which surround us, knowing that these spiritual companions want to help us fulfill our sacred purpose.

 

If your intuition is urging you toward a healing function, you can be sure that this is a Divine voice and not just wishful thinking. During the last several years, a spiritual call has been broadcast like a psychic "help wanted" ad asking for lightworkers to awaken to their healing roles. Those who have heard the call sometimes contact me, asking for reassurance that this inner voice isn't setting them up for disappointment or possible failure.

 

I can certainly understand this fear, since I experienced it myself. When I was a young mother of two and an uneducated housewife, I began having spontaneous visions in which I saw myself as a healer and author. These visions frightened me, because I didn't think I had the time, money, or intelligence to succeed. So I began overeating to silence the inner voice and visions. I didn't feel ready or qualified to awaken to my mission.

What I was doing was the equivalent of pushing the "snooze button" on my spiritual alarm clock. Overeating was my way of delaying God's plan for me, because food would temporarily drown out the sound and sight of my Divine life plan. I gained nearly 50 pounds before I finally surrendered to the Creator and asked for help in making my inner vision a reality. I discovered that as soon as I committed to following my life purpose, doors opened up for me in succession. In miraculous ways that I could never have planned for, everything in my visions became a reality.

 

We cannot fail when we accept the mission we chose for ourselves prior to incarnation. The power and intelligence of the One mind makes no mistakes. We would not have been assigned our lightworker role, were we not perfectly qualified. Since we are made in the image and likeness of One who is all-knowing, all-loving, and able to heal anything, we can relax in the sure knowledge that we were born to heal.



THE WATCHERS
(Also Known as Grigori)

Watcher Angels according to The Book of Jubilees, are the sons of God sent from heaven to instruct the children of men; they fell after they descended to earth and cohabitated with the daughters of men -- for which act they were condemned and became fallen angels. But not all Watcher angels descended; those that remain are the holy Watchers and they reside in the 5th Heaven. The evil Watchers dwell in the 3rd Heaven or in Hell.

The mysterious eighth order of angels, the gentle Grigori were created by God to be Earthly shepherds of the first humans. The Grigori were both physically and spiritually gigantic, at least by the standards of the people who later wrote about them. They served early humanity as vast reservoirs of information concerning the finer points of civilization, and their selflessness was beyond compare. They were also called the Watchers, as it was their job to observe humanity, lending a helping hand when necessary but not interfering in the course of human development.

As has been implied before, angels -- though filled with God's divine grace -- are eminently corruptible in the corporeal world (physical plane) and, perhaps more importantly, when in the presence of humans. The Grigori, designed as the type of angels farthest from divine, proved to be so much more corruptible that it wasn't long before their enormous zest for physical life, proved to be their undoing, from a spirititual perspective. They took husbands and wives among the humans and led greatly debauched lives, neglecting their heavenly duties.

Legends tell us that the children the Grigori begot were hideous, misshapen monsters, now known in demonic circles as the Nephalim, and that a group of angels were quickly dispatched to destroy the half-breeds, after which the Grigori were damned to Earth for the remainder of their long lives.

This is mostly true. The Grigori, both for the sin of lust and for neglecting their duties, were banned from Heavenly society, doomed to spend the remainder of their days roaming the Earth. The Seraphim Council believes that even speaking the name of the Grigori disturbs the Symphony -- they refer to them as the Watchers, since that was their original duty. What few angels know, even today, is that besides their more famous gigantic spawn, the malevolent Nephalim, the Grigori did successfully engender half-breed children, part-angel and part-human. Angels are strictly forbidden to associate with the Children of the Grigori or, God forbid, any actual remaining Grigori they might run across in the course of a mission.

The Watchers and the Watchtowers

Know the history of the Watchers and Watchtowers and why they are called upon in circle. If you don't know their purpose, why call?

Early History

They are considered an old race who have gone past the need for physical bodies. Some claim they are light. There are legends that say they came from the stars. They are the ones known as the Watchers. It is claimed that each of the four Watchers reigns over one of the four directions of the circle.

There were star cults in Mesopotamia around 3000 bce. One of the beliefs of these cults was that there were four major stars, each ruling over one of the four cardinal points. These stars where known as "Lords" or "Watchers."

The Watcher of the East was the star Aldebaran.This star marked the time of the Vernal Equinox. The Watcher of the South was Regulus, marking the time of the Summer Solstice. Marking the Autumnal Equinox was Antares, Watcher of the West. The North Watcher was the marker of Winter Solstice, Foralhaut.

Actual towers, called Ziggurats (cosmic mountains) were built as a form of worship. Each tower bore the symbols of the Watchers. During ritual celebrations the symbols were traced in the air with torch flames or wands, and the Watchers names were called.

The Watchers were thought of as gods that guarded the heavens and earth. Lunar and Solar cults eventually replaced the Star cults.

The Watchers became the gods of the four winds to the Greeks. The Christians took them over as "guardian angels."

The Hebrews taught that all angels, known to them as Watchers, were ruled by four "higher" angels. They became the "Archangels" to the Cabalists.

 

John Dee 1527-1608 and Edward Kelly 1555-1597 and Enochian Magic

 

It is said Edward Kelly was a seer and alchemist, and John Dee was a sage. Kelly "received messages" from a group of beings of the spirit who claimed they were the same who had instructed Enoch. As Kelly received these messages, Dee wrote them down. His writings now compose the magickal system known as Enochian Magic. It is a system of angel magic influenced by Judeo-Christian beliefs.

The doctrine of Enoch is mathematical. According to Dee and Kelly, there are 49 tables of large number and letter squares. There are 48 Gates of Understanding, one gate can not be opened. The 49 tables has 49 rows by 49 columns. The directions of the angels, known as the Enochian Keys, were extracted from these charts.

There are 48 "Calls" or "Keys" that open the gates of these "astral residences." These are symbolically represented by a large letter square. It is divided into four parts by a large cross, called "The Black Cross" by Dee.  These four quadrants are called the Watchtowers. You are able to access 12 astral cities through each Watchtower. The Watchers are the angels who live in these astral cities. In order for the angels to leave their cities and enter human consciousness the gates to the Watchtowers must be opened. Each city is represented in the table by a set of letters in numerical and geometric pattern.

The four Watchtowers guard the 4 extremities of the universe. These Watchtowers are said to have been formed at the time Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden.

The Watchtowers contain all human knowledge and command the elemental spirits. They are said to also have the power of the transformation of things. They hold the secrets to all of mankind.

 

Modern Use of the Watchtowers

The Modern use of Watchtower Elementals is said to be derived from the works of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelly.

It is also said that Aleister Crowley introduced Gerald Gardner to the Elementals (see below), who then wrote them into his own work.

Many Wicca systems have their own versions of the Watchtowers and Watchers. Some see the Watchers as demi-gods, spiritual teachers, cosmic intelligence or beings composed of light. In some eclectic solitary systems, they may not be used at all.

The Watchers are known as Lords, Elemental Rulers or Guardians of the Elements, Earth, Air, Fire and Water. These Elements are said to be populated by Elementals, a type of spiritual creature. The Gnomes populate the Element of Earth and are seen as "Little People" or green light. They are the givers of stability and material gain. They also protect circles cast outdoors. Sylphs are of the Air and are seen as fairies or white light. They hold the keys to knowledge, dreams and wishes, and are protectors of magickal applications. The salamanders inhabit the Element of Fire and may be seen as dragons or lizards. They are protectors of the home or business. Undines, the Elementals of Water, may be "merpeople", sirens, or pink light. Undines are protectors of the gates of death and karma.

It is taught in some systems of magick that there are two sets of portals in a magick circle. Picture a circle within a circle. The inner circle contains Portals of the Elementals at the East, South, West and North. The outer circle contains the Portals of the Watchers, also known as Astral Portals. The corridor between the circles is known as "The World Between the Worlds." Some are taught that this dimension must exist for ritual and/or magickal energies to flow between the Worlds. The Elemental Portals represent the point of access to the Elemental Plane which exists between the Physical and Non-Physical, or Astral, Dimensions. The Elemental Rulers guard the Portals between this World and the Astral.

Some consider it a circle within a square, with the Watchtowers at the outer corners.

The Watchers are said to guard the direct access to the Astral Plane. Each Watcher has its own Watchtower. It is taught they have the power to cancel your magick.

GreyWing does not agree with the above teaching. She does not use the Watchers, nor does she think they are necessary, but that is her opinion. She does call on the powers of the Directions. If a spell has not worked she feels it is not right to say "The Watchers were against my working." It is more likely that you were unsure of what you were doing, and your subconscious overrode your intended outcome. The mind is a powerful thing, conscious and subconscious.

There are magickal gestures to announce that a magickal rite will be performed. Such a gesture is the drawing in the air of a Pentagram. These gestures, along with tools and clothing such as robes, are to get you into the proper frame of mind for magickal work, a signal to let your subconscious mind that something special is about to happen.

The Watchers may be called upon to guard the Circle and witness the ritual to be performed. Every time you perform a spell you are sending out strong vibrations to the entire universe. No matter how good your intentions are, you may be at risk when you work a spell. For this reason some witches call upon the Watchers for protection. If in your self-initiation ritual you called on a Watcher to be with you, he/she will always watch and aid you in future magickal endeavors, if you so choose. They may also assist in a Wiccan's spiritual growth, but that too, in GreyWing's opinion, is actually in your own hands. If you are not ready, your mind will drift, letting you know the time is not right for you.

Every time you perform a spell you use the essences of the four elements, earth, air, fire and water. For example, candle magick uses Fire and Air.

It is important to know what each element means when you call on them. What do you mean by Air? You have to know which manifestation of Air you need for your working. This needs to be decided before you begin your circle so that the aspect of the element you wish to call is correct for what you are doing.

 

Will you choose the Watchers or not? It is for you to decide.
